Love seeing this video of a Dauphin flight at Oshkosh – thanks to the USCG Traverse City (MI) and Steve Kinevo.
The aircraft hum.
The start/lift sequence.
The pilot/crew challenge.
Not going to lie, I kinda miss being in a rotor wing aircraft now.
If you have ever flown with me, then you know…
…I am that guy that ALWAYS pulls out the safety card briefing card during prep for flight.
I follow along w/ the flight crew as they go over all safety procedures.
Seriously, I don’t care how hot you are, I will be paying attention during flight briefing. Try to distract me…and it won’t work.
Maybe it’s the years doing preflight checks or my over active imagination that when the time comes, I will most likely be at the door – who knows!
Race time! Ready….Set……
I’ll ask again: Are you sure you want to join me on assignment?
